Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Henri Boillot, Burgundy, France 2016
Regular price £33.80
The Boillot family have been growing wine on the Côte de Beaune since 1885. Henri Boillot began working at the estate in 1975. He took over the running of the business not long after. Under his guidance, the estate has gained an exceptional reputation and won the right to be regarded among the absolute crème de la crème. Henri now shares responsibilities with his son Guillaume, who has been making the red wines since 2012. This flagship property owns vines in the prime plots of Puligny-Montrachet, Meursault, Beaune, Volnay and Savigny, all of which it farms sustainably. The ageing potential of Henri’s globally acclaimed wines is already legendary – wines that marry restrained elegance and great finesse with tremendous freshness and reverberating minerality.
Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015
Lively minty lift to the medicinal cherry and liquorice aromas. Juicy and intense, offering good density for its humble appellation. The strawberry and raspberry flavours carry nicely on the firmly tannic finish.
